Last month I wrote my last post
of 2015.And now--it's January.This is my post for the first Monday of the
month, in the first month of2016.
I'm planning a fun, busy and
productive 2016.As I mentioned last
month, my second Barkery & Biscuits Mystery, TO CATCH A TREAT, will be a
May 2016 release, and my third Superstition Mystery, UNLUCKY CHARMS, is
scheduled for October 2016.
And on the last day of 2015, I received
some wonderful news.My first Barkery
Mystery, BITE THE BISCUIT, is a finalist for the Maxwell Award in the fiction
category of the Dog Writers Association of America's annual writing competition!I've got some stiff and excellent competition,
including Midnight Ink's Sheila Boneham, but I'm thrilled just to receive the
nomination, whether or not I win.
So... Happy New Year!May you each have a wonderful 2016, filled
with happy surprises, lots of fun mysteries that you read and/or write, and everything
else that you hope for.
